    • Description of the Grotta del Vento (Wind Cave)
      Located in the province of Lucca, in Garfagnana, in the center of the Apuan Alps Natural Park, the Grotta del Vento presents an exceptional variety of aspects of underground karst and attracts thousands of visitors every year.

      Shipped for the first time in 1929, the complex was explored for about 4 km and a half and can be visited with various guided tourist itineraries, the shortest of which lasts an hour and has a flat development. The average route lasts two hours and includes a visit to curious mud formations and underground waterways, while the third, lasting 3 hours, also reaches the Pozzo dell'Infinito about 90 m deep.

      The tourist entrance to the Grotto, whose name derives from the air currents due to the presence of two entrances at different altitudes, is located at the bottom of the Trimpello Canal, near Fornovolasco, in the Municipality of Vergemoli.

      Inside there is a constant temperature of 10.7 ° C with 99% humidity and at each step there are galleries smoothed by water, white and sparkling natural sculptures created over millions of years, castings, draperies, columns, stalagmites with a thousand shades and live stalactites, that is, still in the growth phase, dripping from the ceiling.

      From the Bear Room, with the remains of a cave bear dating back to 8,000 years ago, to the Giant's abyss, a huge vertical tunnel with a spiral pattern, from the Hall of Wonders to the Lake of Crystals, from the Infinity Hall to the Hall Delle Voci, with particular sound effects, the visit to the Grotto is a continuous discovery.

      Two adventure itineraries are also available by reservation, semi-speleological routes developed in vertical areas with no path, to be made tied to safety ropes, in the company of expert speleologists, with abseiling and climbing on ladders: "The Abyss of Light "and" The Corridors of Darkness ".

      La Grotta del Vento offers a free audio guide service in English, German, French, Spanish, Polish, Dutch, Russian, Swedish, Portuguese and Hebrew, and has a bar, picnic area, shopping point and parking.
